HART — An 18-year-old Walkerville man is looking at serving six months in jail after pleading guilty to breaking and entering with intent to commit larceny in 27th Circuit Court Monday, Dec. 7.

Morgan James Pearson, of 160 E. East St., testified that he and two co-defendants broke into a garage last August in the Village of Walkerville by entering through a window. They took a couple of tires and an extension cord, he said.

In exchange for his guilty plea, a second count of breaking and entering was dismissed and his habitual offender notice was withdrawn. Pearson’s jail time will be capped at six months, said Oceana County Prosecutor Joseph Bizon.

Sentencing is set for Jan. 20 at 9 a.m. Pearson was remanded to the Oceana County Jail to await sentencing.
